feel you're entitled to things right? after superstorm sandy guess what he wanted money from? the federal government. he is entitled to seventies 5% of cost and repairs, et cetera. he didn't ask for 75%. >> i am requesting that the federal government exercise its discretion: >> cenk: what happened, chris? you don't want to feel entitled to that, do you? you don't need no stinking federal government. that's a honedout, man so pull up your belt if you can. that's wrong. glass house, but number one, ok, so chris christie, here we go, i'm going -- wait a minute. while i was away, apparently this happened on the "young turks." >> chris christie, from the "young turks," we wish you a very very happy thanksgiving and say to you governor christie for the rest of 2012, we will not utter an ill word about you and we look forward to 2013. >> cenk: i can't drop the elbow. i've got to give him a pardon for the rest of the year. why did you do that? we'll put somebody else in the middle of the ring. who was also an absurd makeup? well, rush has got a different theory on what happened to le
, congressman, there are reports the president may ask congress for $50 billion for hurricane sandy, you know, to cover costs of relief and rebuilding. do you expect that to even be held hostage as well by region sn -- republicans? >> yes, do i. >> so no agreement on fiscal cliff, no agreement on debt ceiling, no agreement on this either? >> that's because they are obstructionists. they've turned the win into a partisan political instrument. they've turned the weather into a partisan political instrument. we have a solution to thisç 37e have introduced a discharge petition. we think that we shouldn't be holding the middle class hostage. everyone agrees the first $250,000 in income should receive a tax increase. i believe it should be higher in some areas like long island. but i'm not telling to tell somebody making $130,000 won't get a tax cut until somebody at $300,000 gets theirs. let's just vote today, tomorrow o a bill to give people a tax cut up to the $250,000, we offered a discharge petition. we need 40 republicans to sign that petition, get this out to a vote, put brakes on going ov
: the spokesperson sandy patt told me by phone the isolation booth is designed as therapy for children needing to calm down. of the 6,500 students in the longview district, eight or nine are allowed to go inside that's because the school has permission from their parents. >> it is concerning to us that there may not be a complete understanding of the situation. >> reporter: catt said some of the eight or nine kids voluntarily go inside the booth for a break from simulation and added when the door is locked a school staff member is outside monitoring what happens. >> that is fascinating but that state law on disciplining students really varies wildly and that the federal law restricts, if there is no federal laws, to restrict policies and practices like this. looked like a jail cell. >> that seems a little harsh for kids, you know, that age. sure teachers will find a way to rationalize it. that seems a little overly punitive and strange. but obviously think, if it gets strong enough parental reaction they will change some of those policies. >> you think. seems archaic. >> music to my ears. the
. government says that hurricane sandy had a big role in that. that could very well be. it also led to reduced wages in the month of october. a lot of construction people along those lines could not work in the middle of all this. there will be work for them when this starts to rebuild which is some sort of silver lining there. the storm affected dozens of states with the most severe damage happening in new york and in new jersey. bill: looking to see bulldozers in some of those neighborhoods unfortunately. >>> new tension in the middle east. this is cairo, egypt. this is the scene in tahrir square and almost nightfall. look at the crowd that has gathered after lawmakers approve a new constitution threatening to inflame already tense situation between the opposition and the heart-line government. steve hair gan streaming -- harrigan, streaming live in cairo, egypt the constitution already written. coming under sharp criticism. what do we know about it, steve? >> reporter: it is being criticized by opponents of this government. first of all people say it is a rush job. they basically pulled an
the need for infrastructure in the northeast -- we are still reeling from the affects of sandy. the pleas of governors like malloy, cuomo, and christie, all are calling for us to focus on infrastructure. it is not only needed in a devastated northeast but clearly across this nation. one only has to read about the situation of roads and bridges to understand the importance of infrastructure and investment. clearly, people need to go back to work. that is something positive that we all agree on that can be done and should be done. but as we noticed today, there are no votes on the united states congress and the house of representatives today. we also agree, and emphasize this again, as did gene sperling -- everyone, and we mean everyone, should get $250,000 in tax breaks. everyone -- and so that means that even billionaires get that first $250,000. and everyone is in agreement -- the republicans do not want to see the middle class go without this tax cut. so where we disagree, let us push that off. where we agree, let's embrace. further, we discussed again the long term effects of our defic
jobless claims which have some sandy issues involved or the fiscal cliff talks? >> definitely the fiscal cliff. what you were talking about yesterday, boehner's comments really turned things around for the markets, all this sense of optimism all of a sudden. we saw the markets go from down triple digits for the dow up to triple digits. we haven't seen a swing like that since over a year ago. it's been october of 2011 was the last time it happened. it's definitely the fiscal cliff driving things. we heard commentary from lloyd blankfein, between that and the lead story -- one of the top stories on the front page of the "wall street journal" suggesting the president is flexible on the tax hikes, that sounds like a deal might get done. you see a gain of 50 or 60 points. gdp up 2.7% from 2%. there was concerning things when you dig into the numbers, it's all fiscal cliff all the time here, chuck. >> oh, hopefully, as you guys say, it will all -- people will rise above, right, becky? >> that's right. >> i know. i see the button. up next, we're taking a deep dive into the u.s. relationship wit
christie, together on superstorm sandy. that's what they want more of. i think members of congress -- >> there's no chris christie in washington. michael, there's no chris christie that's circling around washington, d.c., right now that actually needs something from the president. christie needed stuff from the president and fema and wanted it directly to get to his people. of course they're going to play nice. >> i would like to think, though, the president was elected with a mandate. i can't say that. he doesn't control the house. he didn't have the house before. he doesn't have the house now. so compromise has got to be the word of the day. i think that that's what the constituents of these members most want. >> all right. zachary, senator durbin says he could see $400 billion in entitlement cuts. democratic aides telling politico most of it is going to come from medicare in part by raising the retirement age. a move that more than two-thirds of americans oppose. that's according to the latest "washington post" poll. this is something that democrats are going to have a hard time
decline since hurricane sandy. that's it from cnbc, first in business worldwide. now back to "hardball." >>> back to "hardball." let's take making a deal here for all that at home who want to see republicans and democrats work together to avoid the fiscal cliff, we can bring you two lawmakers who are open to cutting a deal before the end of the year. with me are members from both sides of the aisle u.s. congressman lee tori, a republican from nebraska, and u.s. congressman jerry conley a democrat from nearby southern virginia. but first, i want to start with you. you told the omaha world herald this about republicans, we're screwed either way we have no leverage in these discussions. congressman, what did you mean by that? >> what i mean by that is that the president wants us to take a tax vote before he's willing to talk about anything else cutting or reforming, and republicans just aren't going to do that. so what he's doing is setting us up to be the fall people for going over the fiscal cliff. frankly, going over the fiscal cliff is a win for the president. so either way we're goin
. these numbers were thrown off by sandy. at this point i think wall street is easing into friday. chris, back to you. >> maybe they're just happy it's friday, becky. >> reporter: i am. >>> well, it didn't take long for republicans to reject the president's proposed solution to the fiscal cliff crisis. now harry reid says it's the republicans turn to put out their own plan. with me now tennessee republican congresswoman diane black who is a member of both the budget and ways and means committees. congresswoman, thank you for joining me. we had some reporting earlier that said don't expect any public counter prproposal from republicans. can i ask you why not? >> well, i think, chris, that you can just look at what we did before the election. actually the medicare is what we put the plan out for and we also have a plan out there to avert the fiscal cliff and sequestration. our plans are already there. and we're just waiting for the president to come out with a plan. everything we're hearing is so one-sided. it's all about taxes and now he's telling us he wants to spend $1.6 trillion more than wh
